Martha Reeves & The Vandellas – Honey Chile lyrics

You're shiftless and you're lazy
Just like that hound dog, Daisy
I had when grandma raised me
Honey Chile, [Incomprehensible]Granny

Got too old to scorn me
Dear old auntie warned me
You sure was no good for me
Honey Chile

But your kiss is sweeter than the cake
That Grandma used to bake
Oh, them sweet little things about ya
Sure enough takes the cake

You ain't gonna amount to nothing
'Cause you ain't gonna work for nothing
Without you, I'm good for nothing
Honey Chile, honey Chile

Sure 'bout to drive me wild
And I love you so, can't let go
Now, honey Chile, oh, sugar Chile
I [Incomprehensible]a country mile
Just to be with you
And [Incomprehensible], now honey Chile

I try to act like a lady
But you've been courtin' Sadie
Your reputation's shady
Honey Chile

Hey, you even took out Sally
Who lives across the alley
Oh, I've been keeping tally
Honey Chile

You're like the grapes
Upon the vine at winning [Incomprehensible] wine
'Cause like that home made wine, so sweet
You sure enough drive me out of my mind now

You ain't nothing but a playboy
Using me for a play toy
You're ruining my pride and joy
Now honey Chile, honey Chile

Sure 'bout to drive me wild
And I love you so, can't let go
Now honey Chile, oh, sugar Chile
I [Incomprehensible]a country mile
Just to be with you
And [Incomprehensible], now honey Chile

Ooh, listen here now

One day I'm gonna get stronger
And I won't need you no longer
This feeling will be a goner
Honey Chile

Hey, now I can't take disgracin'
That ain't the way granny raised me
You're gonna hurt you crazy
Honey Chile, sugar Chile

I [Incomprehensible]a country mile
Just to be with you
And [Incomprehensible], honey Chile
Hey, honey Chile

Sure 'bout to drive me wild
And I love you so, can't let go
Now honey Chile, hey, sugar Chile
